Friday Saturday SundayMonday
Tuesday PhotoDump

Well, you know what they say ...

"Better late than never"
(they are always saying things like that, aren't they?)

I know. I know. Pathetic. I'm Pathetic.
(That's what you're thinking. Admit it.)
When things get so busy that your Friday photo dump becomes your FridaySaturdaySundayMonday
Tuesday photo dump perhaps life has gotten a little out of hand.
It was supposed to be a Monday dump but my pics took longer to upload than usual & alas, the clock struck midnight ... thus the reason it's a Tuesday dump. See, I'm not as lame as you thought.

Trinka, ever present, regardless of the time, day or night, right by side.  I love her!

Emily Rae helping me clean up the deck after one of our gazillionth T-storm this summer ...

Anna Elisabeth (aka Boochie) says she's had enough ... not much of an outside girl anyway ... the heat, humidity and "work" were more than she could take!

My corn has gotten pretty tall (except for the bit blown over by the storm the night before)

And it's TASSELLED!  Can cobbs of corn be far behind? I think not!  So exciting!

It's taller than Em ...

It's taller than Nana!

They make me soooooo happy!

I wish my tomatoes would get red already!

We went to Big Papaw & Geggy's to bum some flowers & goodness knows my mother has a lot to bum
and I was invited so I did ;)

My daddy out on the front porch reading the morning paper.

Ruby, the hound dog, the newest addition to the family ... she's adorable

Em & Ruby hit it off immediately!

This is the bed from which I gleaned ... lots to chose from!

My momma, she's still got it ... she can garden with the best of them!

The storm the night before blew down her brown-eyed Susans as well :(

A crawdad ... they grossed me out as a kid and they don't do me any favors as an adult ...
is there anything any uglier? I think not!

 Vivian came to pick up her big sisters & they were off to race ...

Don't they look ready to run ... heck, those girls look ready to win!

Well, that's it but it's not. I'm not sure where my VBS pics are. Why are they not in this folder? Hmmmm, I have no idea. Well, being that last weeks very impromtu VBS was a huge part of the reason this post is so late, I should show you a few ... my fear is that it will be Wednesday before I locate them so, it will have to be for another day.
Good night!

FridayPhotos ...

My high school sweetheart ...

My Thirty-One kit arrived today. I'm excited ...

The flowers soaked up today's rain ... I believe I'm going to have to thin out the perrenials by the backdoor at Summer's end ...
I did add a few impatients early on but you can hardly see them!

This hill is sunny & the only place I can have ferns & hostas is behind the house but they flourish there ... my ever faithful companion, Trinka, leads the way to the garden ...

The morning glories got off to a rough start but they're coming out of it ... it's really not their fault ... I forgot to soak the seeds before I planted them ... I know, I know ... I'll do better next year!

This purple coneflower is having an identity crisis ...
when it decides what's it's gonna do I'll share it ...
it's trying to be purple, really it is ...

I love that these "Brown-Eyed Susans" just volunteered to show up & beautify the back of the hill  ... aren't they lovely?

As did these coneflowers ....

and more Brown-Eyed Susans showed up near the
"dump" ... a small area where things (i.e. old bikes, lawnmowers, etc.)  are discarded until a trip to the landfill is necessary &
those 'brown-eyed girls' certainly makes the mess look prettier, don't they? ;)

My garden beds ... the deer have been unkind this year. In fact, not one pepper plant survived their voracious appetite ... I'll be prepared next year ... they certainly took advantage of my rookie-ness (is that a word?) ... I hope they enjoyed it 'cause next year ... it's on you dumb deer! ;)

My corn & beans are growing & growing!

Cilantro ... how do I love thee? Let me count the ways ...
I love in thee in salsa & salads & well, I love thee in everything ...
you're my favorite herb but don't tell the others! 

Would you like a cherry tomato? Yes, I believe I would ...

This cucumber is trying it's best to grow ...
my neighbors gave me 4 plants & this is the lone survivor of them all ... need I say it again? Yes, I shall "dumb deer!"

I harvested two zuchinni this evening ...
I'm very excited & yes, in answer to your question, I will be making zuchinni bread this weekend, I have no doubt!
(What? You weren't thinking about me making bread? Sorry, my mistake ;)

Now, I'm not a real fan of the whole umbrella dryer when it comes to an outdoor clothesline but I had searched & searched and wasn't able to find anything that I felt was sturdy enough. Sara my awesome neighbor told me that she had a good experience with the umbrella type dryer she'd had years ago. This one got good reviews on Amazon. com so I'm gonna give it a try ... what's one more thing on the hubby's honey-do list, right? ;)

Tomorrow night, we're having a dinner to honor our Pastor & the 25th anniversary of our church ... can you guess what I'll be bringing? "Turkey" you say? (How'd you know? ;)

Well, there you have it my FridayPhotos ...
I've got to hurry & post this because the gentle soaking rains of today have turned into some pretty violent lightning, thunder & rain so before the internet and/or electricity goes out I'll say
"Good night" ... have a wonderful weekend!
